When the carpets in your office are starting to look the worse for wear, you may ask whether it’s time to replace them or to have them professionally cleaned. Repair is always cheaper than replacement, but sometimes new carpets are a necessity. As a general rule, you should consider replacing carpets if they begin to pose health risks or are falling apart. But if there are just a few stains, a professional clean should restore them to their former glory.
When should I buy new carpets?
If there are incredibly stubborn stains on your carpets, resistant even to the most thorough of professional cleaning techniques, replacement may be your only option. If they are harbouring allergens or other things hazardous to people’s health, you really need to remove them. Here are some instances when buying new carpets would be a necessity:
- There has been flood damage recently.
- There is mould forming on your carpets.
- There are biohazards staining the carpets.
- The stains are too stubborn even for professional cleaning.
If you do choose the replacement option, you should look for quality carpets that are stain-resistant. This will help to prevent having to spend more money on new carpets within a couple of years.
When is cleaning the best option?
If you only have stains that will come out with a professional clean, commercial carpet cleaning is the service for you. Many commercial cleaning companies can work out even stubborn stains like chocolate, wine and marker pen. There’s no harm in calling a professional cleaner to ask if they could handle your situation. Here are some things that suggest your carpets could be saved by a little TLC:
- The staining is superficial.
- The carpets are not damaged by water from flooding.
- There are no biohazards like mould or harmful allergens present on the carpet.
